Blog Archives

From day one, “The Canadian Muslim Forum (FMC-CMF) is denouncing the position of the Canadian Government in regards to Omar Khadr, the young Canadian imprisoned in the 21st century “shame prison” called Guantanamo, and its refusal to repatriate him to his country Canada. Again today, the Canadian Muslim Forum (FMC-CMF) is participating in the organization of a picket that will take place in front of the Canadian Government’s office “Complexe Guy-Favreau” Friday July 25 noon.

The CMF calls on all Quebecers to participate in this picket and to sign the petition, addressed to the Harper government demanding that they act as real Canadians.”

Repatriate Omar Khadr… a step towards repatriating Canada’s conscience

Join the picket 12:00 noon, Friday July 25, 2008 Guy-Favreau ( 200 René-Lévesque W.)

Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen, has been imprisoned under inhumane conditions at Guantanamo Bay for over 5 years.

The Canadian government has to do all it can to repatriate Omar who was captured when he was 15 years old.

Remember that: - Omar was arrested as a child. - Canada is the only ally of the United States who has failed to obtain the release of its nationals from Guantanamo. - Omar has been held for years. He was tortured and abused. There is no justice in the military court trying him. - It is the duty of the Canadian government to defend all Canadian citizens equally. - The Guantanamo Bay prison violates international law. Canada should demand it be closed altogether.

Act now! Silence endangers us all.
